You definitely have no knowledge of Globemed. None of the nurses from India are happy here. If they are saying "they are fine" means they are just ashamed of telling everyone that they are trapped by Globemeds false promises and are working as pseudo-slaves
. Ask any Tenet Hospital nurse in South Carolina where a lot had come from India and you will know that :
1.) Most of them are "On Call" at $4.0 per hour
(yes 4 bucks an hour) and they don't even get 40 hours a week to work. Think how much they are making in a week?? RockHills Tenet center had hired 13 nurses from India and except three nurses rest are all on call nurses. They have the green card which is their only reward.
2.) The nurses have been thrown so much red tape for promotions from level 1 to level 2 that you would be discouraged. It is a deliberate mechanism so you keep working at lower level all three years.
3.) The salary increments of Tenet from level 1 to level 2 is 1-2% a year. This is a puny amount for increments.
4.) Most of them are now leaving globemed and have prepared to file labor cases against Tenet and Globemed on the basis of labor exploitation laws.
5.) On the tenet meeting last week with India nurses, the human resources director of tenet categorically said " No more business with globemed in near future"
6.) Globemeds VP Indian-Ops Mr Ramkumar
sent an email two weeks ago which mentions " What went wrong- why have all hospitals in US cancelled our contracts and business deals? we should keep the Indian pride and blah blah blah"
7.) Most of the nursing agencies in USA were sent copies of emails transmitted between the investigative reporter (who cracked this) and the VP of Globemed Paul Nimitz
. ANA and CNA etc all know of this as NurseGate Scandal.
Girls here don't want to spit out the truth because people will laugh at them. So they say its all fine :-)
And this is no hatemail
. Ask these nurses after quoting from my reply ;-) and you shall be enlightened
Quote from rajni
I know of a few who have signed up with Globemed and are doing fine
They are a good company and seem to be the biggest in India
